When you are born into a family where everyone is involved in some aspects of the movie business, it is almost inevitable that you’ll just follow suit. This has certainly the case for Jason Francesco Schwartzman and the rest of his family. Schwartzman had to face the herculean task of getting out of his family’s shadow and he has done in great job in accomplishing this somewhat “solo” status.
